Bentley Continental GT Convertible Number 1 Edition

2019 is a wonderful year for automotive enthusiasts as several carmakers are celebrating their respective milestones in the industry. One of those is a British luxury marque that enjoys worldwide recognition for its rich racing legacy. Get ready to welcome the Bentley Continental GT Convertible Number 1 Edition by Mulliner. It is an exclusive production model with only 100 units available for purchase. Judging by its rarity, it won’t be long until all of the examples on offer will be spoken for.

To start off, we want to point out that this special edition shares some similarities with another limited edition model from the same catalog. In fact, this is the third and final entry in the carmaker’s Centenary series. The first one being the Continental GT Number 9 Edition, followed by the Mulsanne W.O. Edition. All three of these sweet rides boast bespoke and lavish touches from Mulliner. As such, lucky owners have every right to show off the sheer quality and opulence of these automotive masterpieces.

Meanwhile, with the Mulsanne model being the only exception, the Bentley Continental GT Convertible Number 1 pays homage to the brand’s rich racing heritage. To be precise, it draws inspiration from the iconic No. 1 Blower and its record-setting lap speed in 1932 at the Outer Circuit at Brooklands. Thus, to commemorate 100 years of excellence, buyers will have a chance to own a piece of racing history within their new automobile. Engineers are recasting a small piece of the piston from the original No.1 Blower into wheel spinner on the vehicle’s dashboard. Finally, everything else is what anyone would expect from the luxury brand.

The 1964 Aston Martin Goldfinger DB5 Continuation Edition Is Every Collector’s Dream

There’s no denying the fact that Bond movies are super popular even today. We’ve seen many actors play the part of the suave British spy, but Aston Martin remains a series staple. It seems that the franchise is particularly smitten with the marque, yet there’s a good reason for that. Take for example the 1964 Aston Martin Goldfinger DB5, which is the ultimate badass spy car of its generation.

Almost all of the vehicles that roll off the production line are just innately sleek and sexy. In fact, the models that show up on the silver screen are immediately turned into pop culture icons. Now, the company is making a move that’s sure to make die-hard fans of the movies scream with excitement.

Sean Connery’s iconic ride in Goldfinger will be making its return as an exclusive collector’s piece. Only 25 continuation examples are in line for production and will cost a staggering $3.5 million each. What makes these units so special are the additional built-in gadgets inspired by the film.

We’re talking about a bulletproof body, old slick sprayers, a rear smoke screen system, and the list goes on. Other notable additions include revolving license plates, battering rams on each end, and front-firing machine guns. All other armaments will be functional, except for firearms, which will rely on special effects to simulate its operation.

Moreover, the oils slick sprayers will apparently spray water for safety reasons. Due to the aforementioned features, the 1964 Aston Martin Goldfinger DB5 continuation model will not be street legal for obvious reasons. None of that would matter because anyone who would be buying one will be keeping it as a showpiece anyway.
